  • Samtools mpileup - how to define the region (I am lost!)

    Hi everyone!

    After busily mapping my tons of reads and generating and merging BAM files I have reached the next level of confusion...

    I wanna try some consensus/SNP calling; but only for a region (using the -r option); or in my case; a scaffold.

    My ref genome is the result of a shotgun assembly and contains various scaffolds.

    They are named as follows (as an example):

    gi|123456789|ref|NW_123456789.1|

    The 123456789 are just models of course...how the hell do I select one of the scaffolds as a region?

    No matter what I put in, I get the wrong scaffold (always the first in the genome) as output... or I get BAM parsing errors!

    The pipe characters (vertical bars) may need to be escaped (written as \| or slash pipe) or the region argument enclosed in quotes - otherwise the pipe symbol has the meaning at the command line of piping to the next command.

    Perhaps you could show us an actual example copy and pasted from your terminal?

      OMG! Of course! That is such a simple thing...I need to go to bed.

      Thank you so much maubp! Enclosing the entire scaffold name in "" worked like a charm!

        Current Approaches to Protein Sequencing
        by seqadmin


        Proteins are often described as the workhorses of the cell, and identifying their sequences is key to understanding their role in biological processes and disease. Currently, the most common technique used to determine protein sequences is mass spectrometry. While still a valuable tool, mass spectrometry faces several limitations and requires a highly experienced scientist familiar with the equipment to operate it. Additionally, other proteomic methods, like affinity assays, are constrained...

        Strategies for Sequencing Challenging Samples
        by seqadmin


        Despite advancements in sequencing platforms and related sample preparation technologies, certain sample types continue to present significant challenges that can compromise sequencing results. Pedro Echave, Senior Manager of the Global Business Segment at Revvity, explained that the success of a sequencing experiment ultimately depends on the amount and integrity of the nucleic acid template (RNA or DNA) obtained from a sample. “The better the quality of the nucleic acid isolated...
